1  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Another ipod cozy on: December 12, 2005 05:11:54 PM
Christmas gifts are all handmade this year.
(No ipod to put in it over here, so it's flat)
Snap closure, clear plastic vinyl in the windows!

Used the pattern from here, thanks!

2  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Completed Projects / "Omaha is for lovers I don't have to love" t-shirt on: December 12, 2005 04:59:19 PM
Yep. The Christmas gifts are practically making themselves.
(I didn't make this stencil, but I forget where I stole it from. If it's yours, please let me know so I can give credit where credit is due)

3  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Stuffed Love Bear on: December 04, 2005 08:02:52 AM
This little guy was created out of a joke between me and some friends. I got a drunk IM one night from a friend who is out of the country, and he said "soon we will be drunk together and the world will be flowers and love bears!"
I was like, what the heck is a love bear?
So this is his christmas present.
I got the patter from here: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=10382.0

4  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / Felt Koala? on: December 03, 2005 07:32:43 AM
I want to make a little stuffed koala out of felt. I've never made anything 3D from felt before... how do I go about figuring out a pattern?
5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Dying Polyester Dress? on: October 18, 2005 03:08:29 PM
Ok I'm going to be Margot Tenenbaum for Halloween, and I stumbled upon a cheap, long sleeved, striped dress at the Goodwill that is perfect, except for the fact that it is HIDEOUS COLORS. It's neon lime green, white, and navy stripes. 100% polyester. I figure if I can dye it in a brown dye bath, it'll mute the colors and make it more Margot-esque.

Now, as a textiles student in college, I know that polyester won't dye very well. But I've never actually tried it myself. I only need it for one day, so it's not like it needs to be washed repeatedly or anything.

Has anyone sucessfully dyed polyester? What brand did you use? How strong was the dye? Is it going to like, rub off on my skin throughout the night?

Thanks if you can help me!
6  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / How much to charge for custom silkscreening? on: October 04, 2005 05:11:08 PM
I've been asked to custom silkscreen about 40 t-shirts for a kid I sort of know.
I figure it'll take me about 3 or 4 hours to make the screens, I really have no idea how long it'll take me to print the shirts.
How much do you think I should charge for labor? I've never done this sort of thing before so I have nooooo idea.

7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Hoodie with felt heart... Take this and break it on: September 24, 2005 09:25:39 PM
I made this last night, and then woke up and realized I didn't really like it (it turns out that crafts come out better when you're not drinking red wine) so I re-did it. I made the heart pink instead of the original red, and I made the letters neater and turned them pink instead of red also. Much better!

8  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / Scoop of felt ice cream? on: September 21, 2005 08:05:42 PM
I'm trying to figure out how to make a 3D scoop of ice cream out of felt. Obviously I can just make a round ball and stuff it, but I want to make something a little more lifelike. Any suggestions?
9  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects / cupcake soaps! on: September 13, 2005 03:47:22 PM
I asked about using soap in a piping bag yesterday, and finally decided to give it a shot. It was a huge pain, but it worked! If you let the soap cool off enough to hold it's shape, you have about 1 minute to pipe the soap out of a piping bag before it hardens too much... just enough time to frost some soap cupcakes with vanilla scented soap icing! What a yummy birthday present.

10  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / question about soap and piping bags on: September 12, 2005 07:52:37 PM
Hey everyone...
I saw an idea somewhere for soap poured into a cupcake liner with a candle shoved in it for a birthday present.
I was trying to think of some way to make it look like the soap-cupcake was frosted. Is there any way I could put semi-set soap into a piping bag and squeeze it out like real frosting? I'm new to soapmaking so I have no idea how rediculous this quesion is. I just feel like there's a point where the soap is not yet set and I could squish it through a star-tip and pipe on a pretty swirly frosting design.
